Euphoria filled the hall as the students of St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes danced and sang their way through "The Wiz." Production values, light, sound, and set were extraordinarily well-developed and good. The choreography and the dancing showed great skill and a lot of rehearsal.
Adhana Reid turned in a lovely performance as Dorothy. Jewell Dupree made an affecting performance of the Scarecrow. Josh Movius turned in an excellent performance as the Tin Man and Tre Vaughn Allison made a powerful Lion.
LeAnn Dunn as Evillene has a lot of fun with "No Bad News," to my mind the best number in the show.
Headmistress Joan Holden kindly entertained a group of parents at her home before the performance. Among those present were Anna and Stanley Dees, Dr. Ben Bridges, Fran and Gant Redmon, Charlene and Keith Jones, Jan and Hugh Campbell, Jackie Phillips, Donna Hurlock M.D., Adelina Phillips and Liz and Jay Gamble.
